A scalable AmeriCorps VISTA program is established in Eagle County
Several local non-profits are fighting poverty but are under-resourced. With funding from the Corporation for National and Community Service, EVCF established a scalable AmeriCorps VISTA program in Eagle County.
OCF’s AmeriCorps VISTA program places National Service within local non-profits to assist in capacity building measures.
EVCF managed seven VISTA staff as they increased access to healthy meals, built capacity for the local food pantry, developed structures for improved mental health, optimized scholarship programs and reduced the impact of environmental privilege in our valley.
